What a Beast

So, this week we got to try out the new boss in the Trial of the Crusader raid instance, both 10 and 25-man. The “Northrend Beasts” fight only took a couple tries before we got it down, so we were able to kill him on both 10-man and 25-man normal mode. It looks like the “heroic” mode doesn’t unlock until you’ve cleared the whole thing on normal mode.  The northrend beasts have a couple interesting things, like running out of the way from Icehowl, which are a lot of fun. However, they feel more like three mini-bosses than one real epic encounter.

The second encounter in the ToC raid instance will be Lord Jaraxxus, who is one tall, angry looking dude.  As far as I can tell, we should be able to do both the beasts & Jaraxxus this week, which means we’ll get a lot of Triumph badges if all the bosses drop 3 each (plus the 2 we get from running heroic 5-man daily quests).

Conspiracy beasts down

I’ve been so busy with all the new content that I haven’t gotten around to revamping my healing & leveling guides for 3.2 yet. Between running 5-mans and raids almost constantly since the patch came out, along with the daily quests for the tournament & jewelcrafting, and all the RL things that don’t stop just because it’s patch week…. I’ve been really busy lately. Getting my guides in good shape is definitely a priority for me this week. I’ve made minor continuity changes to the forum healing guide version just to not confuse people too much by being out of date, but I really want to sit down and go through it all very, very soon.

    You can only do heroic mode if at least one person in the group has completed regular mode

    I am pretty sure I read that somewhere

    The heroic modes will not unlock until week 6, after all 5 of the normal bosses have been defeated =)

    And then you have a limited amount of attempts on the heroic bosses before you are locked of them for the week.

    Grats on your kills, Lissana!
